Shindig Jobs

 
 

What is Shindig Jobs?

Shindig Jobs helps build better events by making it easy for companies and workers to find each other. Gone are the days when you’d scour Facebook groups and CraigList ads. Finally, you can get back to doing what you love most about events.

Creating a meeting spot for people who need help and others who can offer their services isn’t ground-breaking. It just hadn’t been done in the event industry. We should know. Between our co-founders, we’ve racked up over 65 years of event experience, worked on thousands of events, and hired hundreds of employees and contractors. Getting good help shouldn’t be so hard. 

 

Co-founder, Katy Jacobson   

“When I was in the hotel industry, I was always monkeying around trying to find people to help with our events. What I love about Shindig is, good help is quickly and easily searchable, which gives companies time back to really focus on what they love about their businesses.”

Shindig was born when we thought of there’s got to be a better way to do two things. 

 
 

Getting Freelance Work

The first was freelance for luxury wedding planners who always need good help for day-of assistants. How could we put ourselves out there in a way that would showcase 20+ years of event planning and stand out from the crowd?


Hiring Temp Labor

The second was how difficult it was to find floral designers and furniture movers for a massive project. We spent weeks cobbling together a team of 50+ people – and we scraped the absolute bottom of the talent barrel to make it happen. Why wasn’t there a pool of qualified designers and skilled installers?

Co-founder, sam Jacobson   

“For two years, I spent hours every week looking for floral designers to create work for one of the biggest event producers in the country. I thought ‘there’s got to be an easier way.’ We created Shindig to take away the stress of finding quality people and give you more time to focus on making pretty parties.”

Who Uses Shindig?

 

It’s hard to produce events

When we started talking more about this with our colleagues in the event industry, it was easy to see everyone was in the same boat. Good help is (too) hard to find, and there’s no way to see who’s got the skills and who’s a rookie when it comes to experience. 

Event Companies need help

Companies who use Shindig are tired of spending hours every week looking for qualified help. You’re over FB groups and CraigsList ads. You’re tired of desperately looking for workers via Instagram asks. You don’t want to take any more chances on who you’re hiring.

Freelance workers want gigs

Shindig workers are freelance planners who want more work on great gigs. You’re movers who want to see a project come to life. You’re floral designers who want to get away from constant texting to find hours. You’re interested in trying something on before committing full-time.

Co-founder, Brian Leahy  

“When we developed the idea of creating this new marketplace to find and hire part-time workers through Shindig, I immediately wished I could use it for myself! Needing workers for my own company is a constant battle for me since there really isn't another solution out there.”

What fields of work?

Events are put together by all sorts of workers. We want to be sure everyone has a chance to find work or hire team members for every position. If you find yourself in these you’ve found the right place to join.

Co-founder, Michael Wiese  

“Technology permeates every corner of our modern lives. I am thrilled to bring my skills and background to the events industry as I lead the tech development of our Shindig platform. It’s wonderful to be apart of something that brings teams together to accomplish great things nationwide.”
